    Hey!
    just 3 days ago i recieved my A-level results. I took Travel and Tourism, Media studies and Art, and came out with DDD. I was pretty shocked, but in a way expected it to be pretty low, the reason was due to a friend who was suffering alot with family problems and self issues, so i had to be with her constantly as i was her closest friend. (am not blaming her with what i came out with tho)
    well, am lost on whether i should retake the units to improve the grades or just leave it. If i decide to retake, i can do them in january so i wont be taking an whole year....but am just worried that retaking wouldnt look good on CV's.
    what is your thought on DDD? and what would you do? well i took japanese A-level too and came out with an A so its ADDD.
    This year am thinking to take an gap year then go in to uni next year!
    Thanks for your help

    You should retake the units. You don't have to specify retakes on your CV, don't worry.

    Wowza, you got an A in Japanese!? Well done! But yeah, I'd say retake - you could even work it to your advantage as it shows dedication and drive - you're not just leaving them as they are. Good luck!
